New Song - Poem by Ch J Satyananda Kumar

(Kotta paata)

Telugu original: Bhaskarabhatla Krishna Rao
English Translation: Ch J Satyananda Kumar

Ika
NE paata paatE paadanaa!
Tirigi
NE paata aatE aadanaa! !
LOkulantaa vollumarachi
LOkamanta sullutirigee
Ningi nundi phellu phelluna
Nippu kanikaly visarutuntE
Paata paatE paadanaa
Paata aatE aadanaaa! !

Dappiyantee dalladinchee
Aakalantoo alamatinchi
SOshapOvuchu, srukki tElE
Maanavaalini marachipoyi
Paata paatE paadanaa!
Ika, nE paata AtE aadanaa! !

LokamantE lOtudeliyani
VeluturantE velugu teliyani
Maata yantE mamata teliyani
Maarumoolala mraggipOyi
Tirigi,
Paata paatE paadanaa
Ika, nE paata aatE aadanaa! !

LOkamanta kallu terachee
LOkulantaa vallu virachee
Parugu paruguna paruvulettutu
Pagalu rEyee payanamavutE
Ika, paata paatE paadanaa
NE paata aatE aadanaa! !

Chetta pattaal pattukoni
DEsadEsaal vellutuntE
Naadu dEsamu nadakamarachee
Alasi solasee toolutuntE
Tirigi
Paata paatE paadanaa!
Ika, nE paata aatE aadanaa! !

English Translation:

Now
Should I still sing the same old song
Then
Should I still do the same old dance
When all the public forgetting themselves
All the world swirling in whirls and
Throwing from the skies
Those thundering balls of fire
Should I still sing the same old song!
Then
Should I still do the same old dance! !

Forgetting the humanity which is
Worrying and crying thirsty
Crying wryly being hungry
Panting and fainting down
Should I still sing the same old song!
Then
Should I still do the same old dance! !

Forgetting the humanity which
Knows not the depths of the world
Knows not the glow of the light
Knows not the affection of mother
Which languishes in remotest lanes
Should I still sing the same old song
Then
Should I still do the same old dance

When the whole world opens its eyes
All the people flexed their muscles
And run as fast as they can
Traveling around all the day and all night
Yet
Should I still sing the same old song and
Should I still do the same old dance! !

Holding the hand in hand
When all the states are marching ahead
When my nation has forgotten to walk and
Staggered fretting and fuming
Yet
Should I still sing the same old song!
Then
Should I do the same old dance! !

    From time immorial this question is being asked, the songs should be new, with the thunder and thirst, why not you think forward? when the one loved love you the most, and asking yu to fly high, decided and write. (Report) Reply
